Viruses are small pieces of RNA (ribonucleic acid) or DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), many are encapsulated in a protein-based envelope known as a capsid, others protect their genetic material with a membrane or envelope derived from the cell to which they They infect and some others also surround their capsid with a cell membrane.

Viruses have evolved to reproduce within the cell they infect, since by themselves they are not capable of doing so because they lack the necessary molecular machinery. So there are three problems that a virus must solve in order to make more copies of itself: 1) How does it reproduce within the cell it infects? 2) how to spread from one host to another? and 3) how to avoid being eliminated by the host’s defenses (immune system)?

In general, DNA viruses use parts of the host’s information, as well as part of its cellular machinery. The problem with this strategy is that most of the host’s mature cells are not actively replicating, they are resting to save energy. Therefore, DNA viruses need to find a way to activate the motor (“power it up”) of the host cell or, alternatively, bring with them the attachments of those cell parts that are not active when the virus enters. Basically what viruses do to reproduce is hijack the cell’s factory to produce viruses instead of new cells. On the other hand, RNA viruses bring with them their own genetic information copying machines (eg.

Digitization of “classic” glass slide information is an essential approach for more reliable, faster and more efficient work in cytology, histology and cytopathology medical settings.

The main advantages of a digital slide version are:      · Secure storage of confidential patient information · Database for long-term scientific work · Worldwide networks · Exchange of clinical experience · Easy accessibility to daily routine

In an additional expert’s clinical consultation, digitized patient information can be sent around the world for a ‘second opinion’ from an international specialist: confidential samples remain protected, proprietary patient data is kept secure. Moto EasyScan is an efficient instrument for producing and sharing high-quality images from different sources. Simple and easy, the implemented software also allows inexperienced users fast and reliable data acquisition.


Additionally, digitized slides are a quick and easily accessible tool for a modern style of college teaching. Hundreds of slide samples, some of them delicate and with rare cases, can be delivered in identical quality to each student.
Typical Features, Unique Anomalies: Thanks to internet access, students can work from home in an efficient educational experience:

· No risk of broken slides
· Identical information for each student
· Database accessible 24/7

Class III Biological Safety Cabinet

The last appearance of the Ebola virus in West Africa posed a risk and a threat of enormous consequences throughout the world!
Despite years of research on the Ebola virus, it has not yet been possible to deliver vaccines or treatments to the population at risk and to medical aid teams. Therefore there is currently no prophylaxis or treatment for Ebola virus infection. This is the reason why the World Health Organization (WHO) classifies Ebola as a risk group level 4 pathogen virus. A risk group level 4 pathogen must be handled, according to the WHO, at a level of environmental containment grade 4, wearing specific protective clothing and working with a Microbiological Safety Class III cabin.
We present the Cruma Virus 3 model, a Class III microbiological safety cabinet developed by Euroclone® in Italy.

Sloped front design for maximum operating comfort.
2B Finish Stainless Steel Internal Surfaces
Worktop with liquid retention (stainless steel finish 2B)
Total visibility to air and aerosols through the airtight front window, equipped with robust gloves (Class III) for safe handling when working with risk group 4 pathogens.
Class III: Exclusive design with four filters for maximum safety of the environment and the operator (risk group 4 pathogens): one (1) pre-filter, one (1) HEPA H14 In-Let, two (2) HEPA H14 at the extraction. 100% of the air is filtered out.
High efficiency Class H14 filters with 99.995% for air particles in MPPS (most penetrating particle size, according to standards EN1822-1 and EN 13091: 1999 tested and certified)
Filter change and maintenance from the front of the cabin.
Easily installable pull-out transitions.
Non-return valve (optional) for ducted configuration.
Security key. The key can be removed when the unit is in safe mode, in order to avoid unwanted operations. In the event of a power failure, the booth returns to the original working configuration.
Automatic calibration cycle every time the booth is turned on.
High speed purge of the work zone before reaching the safe mode of operation.
Visual representation of security conditions.
Pre-warning before reaching alarm conditions (visual and acoustic alarms)
Soft touch control keyboard with keys for standard services. UV and fluorescent lights interconnected.
Work surface displacement (vibration) <0.005mm
RMS between 20 Hz and 20,000 (ISO 5349 tested and certified)
Maximum power (for each energy point): 3Amps.
Microprocessor equipped with analog alarm clock.
Leak test according to EN 12469 and ISO10648.2
CE certification according to the Machinery Directive 2006/42 / CEE

Born and raised in Brussels in an English family, I have always lived in a multicultural environment. After several work experiences in marketing and communication, I came to Smart Water Magazine, which I describe as the most exciting challenge of my career.
I am a person with great restlessness and curiosity to learn, discover what I do not know, as well as reinvent myself daily, someone who is curious about life and wants to know. I enjoy sharing knowledge.
This is my personal project but I also collaborate in other blogs, it is the case, the most important web on water currently exists in the US, if you are interested you can read my articles here.
